This is the third beating this month but he always says he’s sorry. I know he means it when he says sorry and I know he had a horrible childhood. He told me his dad used to beat up his mom and him.
When he’s not drinking he’s the greatest husband and father. If his boss wasn’t such a jerk, I know my husband wouldn’t drink so much. I know if I was a better wife and the kids picked up their toys he wouldn’t get so mad.
This is the fourth time this month he beat me and now he is beating the kids. I know he doesn’t mean it. He loves us.
I’m pretty sure we’ll survive the beatings. Besides, what can I do?
